Content strategy starts with defining a vision, then moves into deep analysis of the current state, and ends with synthesizing the information into a strategy document.
For those of us who’ve moved from managing digital properties in the private sector to a public-sector equivalent, the website analytics we once obsessed over no longer tell the right story. Instead of being motivated by profit, all we care about is how well we serve the public.
For many constituents looking for government services, their user journey doesn't start at an agency website, but at a search engine, like Google or Bing. In order to reach an audience where they are, state organizations must make search engine optimization (SEO) a digital priority for their websites.
Readability describes how hard or easy it is to read your content. This applies to how it’s written, the way it’s organized, the font size you use, how mobile-friendly it is, and more.
More digital interaction means higher demand for effective content from your agency. Sometimes this demand means more content to support more decisions and tasks, and sometimes this demand means better content.
